A kisby ring is a ring shaped life buoy designed to be thrown to a person in water to provide buoyancy to prevent drowning. The kisby ring, also known as ‘kisbie’ or ‘kisbee’, is named after the inventor, Thomas Kisbee. The nautical life saving apparatus usually has a connecting line allowing a person to be pulled in to safety. These earrings are symbolic of the value of reaching out to others in need.
The Kisby Collection, inspired by the kisby ring, symbolizes the value of reaching out to those in need and embracing the kinds of relationships which keep each other afloat through rough waters.
